The people behind the BaconSalt.com website, where "everything should taste like bacon," are living up to their motto by introducing Bacon Baby Infant Formula, which will ensure that your baby gets all the fat, protein, complex nutrients (and let's not forget the delicious flavour of bacon) to help in their brain development.
Wait... brain development? Apparently so:
The most rapid brain growth occurs during the first year of life, with the infant's brain tripling in size by the first birthday. During this stage of rapid central nervous system growth, the brain uses sixty percent of the total energy consumed by the infant, and the brain itself is sixty percent fat. Fats are major components of the brain cell membrane and the myelin sheath around each nerve. So, it makes sense that getting enough fat and the right kinds of fat can greatly affect brain development and performance. In fact, during the first year, around fifty percent of an infant's daily calories come from fat.
This got our brains spinning. What about using bacon (which is 65% fat) to deliver these proteins and fats? we thought. Yet babies are not able to consume this most delicious of meats because they lack teeth and digestive systems that can break down solid foods.
So we consulted with pediatricians and began to experiment with drying and grinding bacon into a fine powder, then applying a patent-pending process to concentrate this powder into the most essential nutrients and ingredients for brain development. This potential infant superfood was then added to a test subject's infant formula.
You should read the test results, which is pure brilliance -- but I'd expect nothing less from the people that gave us Baconnaise.
